Author Frantzich Discusses Involvement in Political Change Thursday, March 14

Stephen FrantzichSALISBURY, MD---Stephen Frantzich, author and U.S. Naval Academy political science professor, speaks on how and why individuals should become involved in political change Thursday, March 14, at Salisbury University.

His presentation is 4 p.m. Thursday, March 14, in Henson Science Hall Room 103.

Frantzich is the author of Citizen Democracy, which highlights individuals nationwide who chose to become involved in — rather than apathetic toward — the political process and explores the reasons they made that choice. Booklist says the book “offers a direct assault on fashionable distaste for politics.” The Bloomsbury Review calls it “informative” and “fascinating.”

At SU, Frantzich emphasizes that democracy is not a “spectator sport.” He uses real-life examples of students and others who have changed national policy through dedication and clever strategies to show how a democratic society relies on informed activists.

Sponsored by the Environmental Studies Department, admission to his talk is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6030 or visit the SU Web site at www.salisbury.edu.
